When we were a new studio, we met John and Casey. And Clive! And what a fortunate meeting that was!
Clive was three months old. Now…. we have a first year baby photography program. We shoot babies when they are: newborns, three months old, six months old, nine months old and then we celebrate their first birthday with a shoot that includes a cake smash. Out of all these shoots, the three month shoot is my least favorite. Here’s why: 3 month old humans are kinda dull. That being said, they are cute. And we all still love them. But… newborns are so squishably irresistable. At six months, they are sitting, interacting and babbling. At nine months they are pulling themselves up onto furniture- often scooting or crawling. And, c’mon, how fun are one-year olds?!! Soooooo fun! So, for me, three month sessions are okay, just not the rock star sessions of the first year program.
But Patrick and I enjoyed Clive’s session in Swanson Park. Clive slept through most of it, but his parents were a hoot. Casey is a charming combination of sarcastic and positive. John is quietly sweet and has sort of an intellectual vibe to him. So, spending time with the two of them leaves a person feeling amused… and a little smarter. Sign me up. So if this session had been a one time meeting, we’d have counted ourselves lucky. But, we have been able to shoot Casey and her family several times. Casey is what I call a “connector.” She is that person we all know who knows someone else who would be perfect for this or that. We have met several other clients through Casey. We love Casey! And we love shooting her family. On this Throwback Thursday, here is a look at some highlights.
There was the outdoor first birthday party at the Sedgwick County Park… with a pony!
There was a first birthday session.
A family session in Riverside Park
A Halloween mini photo-op for baby Chippendale at our North Riverside home
And recently there was a vintage shoot and a Super Hero shoot in our studio
Last summer we partnered on a shoot for the Urban League. We would have shot their November wedding but we were out of town. lol
We are putting together a referral program in our studio. And I think we should call it “The Casey.” lol We are grateful to have met this young family and feel so lucky to watch their cute son grow. Sometimes you meet people and it’s fine, but nothing much comes of it. Sometimes you meet a connector and you click with them. And in those cases my advice is to express gratitude, give back to them, and enjoy the ride. If you’re lucky it could be a long one.
Are you a connector- someone who has family and friends all around? We would love to be your photographer, and lavish you with referral credits in our new program, so that you always have current photos.
